  • I am not aware of a group policy setting, but if its helps you can use the ClientPolicy to control this option;

    Set-CsClientPolicy -Identity *DesiredPolicy* -EnableIMAutoArchiving $True

    "When set to True, a transcript of every instant message session that a user takes part in will be saved to the Conversation History folder in Outlook"

  • Yes - I got a solution - use powershell with the Lync online connector

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Import-Module LyncOnlineConnector
    $cred = Get-Credential
    $CSSession = New-CsOnlineSession -Credential $cred
    Import-PSSession $CSSession –AllowClobber

    #to test on a single user before applying to the whole tenant (can take up to 24 hours to apply)
    Grant-CsClientPolicy -Identity username@company.com -PolicyName tag:ClientPolicyNoIMURL
    #to apply to the whole tenant
    Grant-CsClientPolicy -Tenant <tenantID> -PolicyName tag:ClientPolicyNoIMURL

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hope this helps

  • You didn't need GPO. To enforce policy for all users, you can run below command:

    Set-CsClientPolicy –Identity Global –EnableIMAutoArchiving $True –EnableCallLogAutoArchiving $True

  • Thanks Corey

    We have Skype for Business with Office 365 - Where about would I run this command? Would I have to connect to MSOL to get that particular set of commandlets?  We don't have an on prem lync server.

    Thanks
